Fairbanks Ice Dogs earn series win with back to back victories over Chippewa

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Fairbanks Ice Dogs were able to secure a series victory on Saturday with a victory over the Chippewa Steel.
The dogs won the series finale 6-3.
Chippewa actually got on the board first, but the lead didn't last long, with the Ice Dogs adding two goals to close out the first period.
Both teams scored once more in the second period, but the Dogs were able to outscore their Midwest Division foes 3-1 in the final frame to secure the win.
All the goals were scored by different skaters for the Dogs with Grant Ledford, Luke Mobley, Laker Aldridge, Luke Cioli, Jax Murray, and Tyler Deweese all lighting the lamp.
We spoke to Mobley and Deweese after the game about how important this series victory was for the Dogs.
"That was huge for us. Like I said, we've been a little inconsistent. We still need to get better but we've got the off weekend coming up so we can shore things up, get back to work," said Mobley.
"It was huge. We've kind of been on a rollercoaster here lately. It felt good to finally close out a weekend, get this series and get another two big points in the standings. Hopefully we can build on this in the off–weekend, get some guys some rest but still get better during the work and then look forward to the south division games to come," said Deweese.
The Dogs will now get a weekend off and will be back in action on February first when they host the Corpus Christi Ice Rays.
